Trailer Watch: Jennifer Connelly Contemplates the Son She Abandoned in Claudia Llosa's 'Aloft'

Exquisite cinematography of the Arctic Circle creates a sense of mystery and still waters running painfully deep in the first trailer for Claudia Llosa’s “Aloft,” which premiered at the 2014 Berlinale.  

Llosa’s English-language debut follows a woman, Nana (Jennifer Connelly), who abandons her two sons, the younger of whom is terminally ill. Decades later, the surviving child (Cillian Murphy) searches for his mother, who has since become a faith healer and a hermit, with the help of a journalist (Melanie Laurent), who has her own reasons for trying to find Nana.  

Llosa’s last feature was “The Milk of Sorrow,” which won the Golden Bear at the 2009 Berlinale and became the first Peruvian film to be nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.  

“Aloft” will play at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and open theatrically in NY and LA on May 22.
